"Accommodate" gets me sometimes. Words with double letters that are pronounced like single letters can be aggravating like that.



Glad you appreciated that little bit of what I threw in there and momentarily patted myself on the back for.

So cB's post in the Happy Thread about Christmas carols reminds me that there are really only a handful of holiday songs I even like. They are as follows:

1. "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" (but only the James Taylor version, because his version is kind of doleful and depressing and that is totally my jam*; any nominally cheerful song that includes a line like "We'll just have to muddle through somehow" was pretty much made for me):



*Bonus, sort-of-Christmas song in the same vein: Dan Fogelberg's "Same Auld Lang Syne" (yes, I have the tastes of a 70-year old)...





2. "Snoopy's Christmas vs. The Red Baron" by The Royal Guardsmen (a song about violent, bloody (cartoon) battle should not be so dang catchy, but it is):





3. "Linus and Lucy" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio (yes, there is a Peanuts theme (pun intended) here--what of it?):





4. "Do You Hear What I Hear" (I guess there are several decent versions, but the one I have heard most on the radio in recent years--and the one of which I have grown most fond--is Carrie Underwood's):





5. "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" (Boss's version, obviously; it's actually one of only two or three Springsteen songs I even like):





6. "Blue Christmas" (yes I know that Elvis was allegedly a racist piece of hillbilly slime but maybe that's actually apocryphal and anyway man oh man could he sing):





7. "Little Saint Nick" by the Beach Boys (side note: I really love the Beach Boys, just in general):





I also really (unironically) enjoy most versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside" while also acknowledging its possible date-rape-y qualities (though others have made mildly compelling arguments to the contrary, so there's that); anyway, here's the Funny or Die send-up, which features the always-charming Casey Wilson:



Oh, and since we were talking about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend up-thread, here's their version of a Christmas song, which I find rather catchy:



Rachel Bloom also has a song called "Chanukah Honey," which is pretty great:



And, finally, who could forget this gem?

While waiting for the chance to catch 2049, a friend opined that it was a terrible film, very misogynistic in nature, and urged her friends to boycott it. And I realize that it's kind of silly and very non-independent-thinking of me, but now I'm really hesitant -- down inside I think I might be afraid that I'll like it...

The film isn't misogynistic at all. Some people are just ridiculously stupid and unable to distinguish the difference between a film portraying something and a film condoning it. The world portrayed in Blade Runner (both the original and the new film) is extremely misogynistic. There's an argument that the original Blade Runner has a streak of misogyny (I mean, hell, Deckard basically rapes Rachael in it at one point), but Blade Runner 2049 is critical of the world it presents. To get angry with it for this is to completely miss the point of the film, which is (among other things) that misogyny is bad.

Well put.

Skittles is lovely, with gorgeous fur
But she has her human's eggnog to stir
And hours to go before she purrs
And hours to go before she purrs



Nice Frost there! (My fave poem no less)

As for tax reform, here's where those shadow leaders come in. Congress knows which side their bread is buttered on, and they know they have a douchebag in office who does not give a flying fuck about the middle class and will not defend them. And, the people who stand to get hurt most are the people who still fucking believe trickle down economics is a thing.


Right on the mark. Sadly frown

I don't know about any of the other fellas out there, but the moment my hot romantic interest dates some dude the age of my dad, who also turns out to be a time duplicate of me, I also go out and look for me a Colleen.

Yeah, fuck RoseArt--if you're going to eat a crayon, it's gotta be a Crayola. Just remember not to peel it, because you lose a lot of fiber and other nutrients that way.

Speaking of fuzzy science, what's the deal with keto? Can someone please explain it to me in terms I can understand, preferably using the Official PEEL™ Smileys?



Keto  laff diets  evil laugh tend to be  confused caloric  shifty deficient  wtf? because they cut out  hmpf high caloric  cool foods, like bread  eek, so although you eat  roll eyes as much as you can  frown most of that food  cry doesn't get stored away
  sleep

And I didn't use the  puke smiley once in that explanation.... Phew  roll eyes

Oh, I'm definitely more obsessed with movie length (you know us women, always critical of the length of things) than a normal person should be...



Different strokes for different folks, though, I suppose.

FAKE LIST!

No one said I would do it, but I won the List, 306 electoral posts.  Biggest post count in history!

You're just upset that I beat you. tongue

I would have won the popular posts too, if it wasn't for all the illegal posts in Rhode Island!

I really want to know what that costume is made out of. It looks like velvet or really heavy felt or some sort of molded foam, and it's wiggin' me out.

Anyway, relevant to recent conversations in this thread:



I'd watch that movie pretty freakin' hard.


 
WHY DOES EVERYTHING COME BACK TO JEFF GOLDBLUM?
Because he is the supreme being.
Jeff Goldblum is my religion.
 
I would watch the shit out of that movie. Also, they better include this scene OR ELSE:


cB, you and I can be the Legion of Future Ex Mrs. Ian Malcolms. If he's the supreme being, we can be his high priestesses. Deal?

I am inordinately fortunate to know you guys smile

...and a terrific roommate (who's fallen in love with me but that's another thread)...


People are falling in love with you; you're falling in love with people, and you're having wild sex with scads of super hot women? Uni sure is a lot more complicated than back when I was in school tongue



What?  My time at university was all of those things, if you ignore all of those things.

Hello Everyone,

I am new here in this community. I'm working with [redacted spam] is India’s leading organization in the field of Information security.

[redacted] is the best company for VAPT & Penetration Testing in India...


Can you help me protect my collection of very strange and borderline illegal porn?



I'm assuming that's included in the "penetration testing"...

I know this thread has largely outlived its purpose, since we no longer hold (much less nominate people for) PotM, but I feel like this well-placed Futurama reference deserves some recognition:

I swear I wasn't trying to be cute or anything, but I watched two movies last weekend and they both had the word "ghost" in the title

So that's why you said you had to go meet that ghost.

Reader, I chortled. Well played, UrL!

I'm listening to Powerwolf and Gloryhammer. You wouldn't be able to convince me fifteen years ago that I'd be enjoying these bands today.



Gloryhammer sounds like a uniquely Nordic sex position...



Ah, yes- Svip's favorite.

I'm holed up with Svippy, of course, and I'm doing okay for the most part. I can say, though, that I'm starting to communicate in a series of clicks and buzzes instead of words. Svip responds by patting me gently on the head until I make a shut down noise and go to sleep.


And I clearly need to get my eyes examined, because I read that as "to communicate in a series of dicks and buzzes". Hopefully someday I'll be able to leave the house so I can see a vision specialist!

You know, PEEL does feel like it's picked up a bit over the last few months. I remember we would sometimes go days without any new posts after hobbitboy left, but now there's actual discussions going on! I wonder if that will last once the US election is over and when the pandemic ends...



If either of those things are ever concluded, you mean.  tongue

That's exactly how I felt when learning French. When I realized that they did not have proper designations for numbers past 69 and use addition to add numbers past that, I just said fuck it.
